Fewest Coronavirus Restrictions - Missouri is number 6

Source: WalletHub

With all states gradually reopening but monitoring for any spikes in COVID-19 cases that would impact their reopening plans, the personal-finance website WalletHub today released updated rankings for the States with the Fewest Coronavirus Restrictions, as well as accompanying videos and audio files.

To identify which states have the fewest coronavirus restrictions, WalletHub compared the 50 states and the District of Columbia across 16 key metrics. Our data set ranges from whether child-care programs and restaurants have reopened to the presence or absence of a "shelter-in-place" order. Below, you can see highlights from the report, along with a WalletHub Q&A.

Coronavirus Restrictions in Missouri (1=Fewest, 25=Avg.):
  • 1st – Requirement to Wear a Face Mask in Public
  • 1st – Reopening of Child-Care Programs
  • 15th – Travel Restrictions
  • 2nd – Large Gatherings Restrictions
  • 7th – Strictness of "Shelter in Place" Order
  • 6th – Reopening of Non-Essential Businesses

Benefits of Vitamins, Herbs, Minerals, and Other Supplements

Consider taking the following as daily supplements. (Always consult with your health provider before adding any new supplement to your regimen.)


Calcium is crucial in growing new bone and maintaining bone strength. Calcium supplements are standard for treating and preventing osteoporosis -- weak and easily broken bones -- and its precursor, osteopenia.

Calcium is used for many other conditions. It's an ingredient in many antacids. Doctors also use calcium to control high levels of magnesium, phosphorus, and potassium in the blood. There's good evidence that calcium can help prevent or control high blood pressure. It also may reduce PMS symptoms as well as play a role in preventing certain cancers. According to some research, calcium with vitamin D, for instance, may help protect against breast cancer in premenopausal women. Other research, however, has not come to this conclusion. Calcium also has been looked at for other uses, for example, aiding weight loss. But so far, these studies have been inconclusive.

The people at highest risk of a calcium deficiency are postmenopausal women. Since dairy products are one of the most common sources of calcium, people who are lactose intolerant or vegan are also at increased risk of calcium deficiency. (WebMD, November 13, 2018).


CoQ10 - Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is an antioxidant that your body produces naturally. Your cells use CoQ10 for growth and maintenance. Levels of CoQ10 in your body decrease as you age. CoQ10 levels have also been found to be lower in people with certain conditions, such as heart disease. CoQ10 is found in meat, fish and whole grains. The amount of CoQ10 found in these dietary sources, however, isn't enough to significantly increase CoQ10 levels in your body. As a supplement, CoQ10 supplement is available as capsules, tablets and by IV. CoQ10 might help treat certain heart conditions, as well as migraines and Parkinson's disease. (MayoClinic, October 13, 2017).

D3 vitamin

Vitamin D (ergocalciferol-D2, cholecalciferol-D3, alfacalcidol) is a fat-soluble vitamin that helps your body absorb calcium and phosphorus. Having the right amount of vitamin D, calcium, and phosphorus is important for building and keeping strong bones. Vitamin D is used to treat and prevent bone disorders (such as rickets, osteomalacia). Vitamin D is made by the body when skin is exposed to sunlight. Sunscreen, protective clothing, limited exposure to sunlight, dark skin, and age may prevent getting enough vitamin D from the sun.

Vitamin D with calcium is used to treat or prevent bone loss (osteoporosis). Vitamin D is also used with other medications to treat low levels of calcium or phosphate caused by certain disorders (such as hypoparathyroidism, pseudohypoparathyroidism, familial hypophosphatemia). It may be used in kidney disease to keep calcium levels normal and allow normal bone growth. Vitamin D drops (or other supplements) are given to breast-fed infants because breast milk usually has low levels of vitamin D  (WebMD).


Magnesium is a cofactor in more than 300 enzyme systems that regulate diverse biochemical reactions in the body, including protein synthesis, muscle and nerve function, blood glucose control, and blood pressure regulation. Magnesium is required for energy production, oxidative phosphorylation, and glycolysis. It contributes to the structural development of bone and is required for the synthesis of DNA, RNA, and the antioxidant glutathione. Magnesium also plays a role in the active transport of calcium and potassium ions across cell membranes, a process that is important to nerve impulse conduction, muscle contraction, and normal heart rhythm (National Institute of Health).


  • Omega-3 fats are essential fats that you must get from your diet. They have important benefits for your heart, brain and metabolism.
  • Omega-6 fats are essential fats that are an important source of energy for the body. However, the Western diet contains too many.
  • Omega-9 fats are non-essential fats, since they can be produced by the body. Diets that replace some saturated fats with omega-9 fats may have benefits for metabolic health.
  • The best sources of omega-3s are oily fish, whereas omega-6s and omega-9s are found in plant oils, nuts and seeds.
  • Combined omega-3-6-9 supplements provide optimal ratios of fatty acids, but likely provide no additional benefits compared to omega-3 supplement (Healthline, January 15, 2017).


Probiotics balance friendly bacteria, reduce the symptons of digestive orders, and improve the immune system. They may help some mental health issues, improve heart health, reduce severity of some allergies and eczema, help lose weight and reduce belly fat, and prevent and treat diarrhea  (Healthline, Aug. 23, 2016).




Increase your male strength and stamina without drugs

Catuaba Bark

Catuaba is also used for agitation, trouble sleeping related to high blood pressure, nervousness, ongoing mental and physical fatigue (neurasthenia), poor memory or forgetfulness, skin cancer; and as a tonic. It is also used to heighten sexual arousal and treat male sexual performance problems (RXList, Sep 17, 2019).

Eurycoma Longifolia Jack root  

The root and bark of Eurycoma longifolia are used for treating erectile dysfunction (ED), increasing interest in sex, male infertility, boosting athletic performance, body building, and reducing body fat (RXList, Sep 17, 2019).

Copper, Zinc, Magnesium supplements for use with Light Therapy Patches

Light therapy patches, like those from LifeWave, require you have enough copper, zinc, and magnesium in your body to work effectively. In addition, you need to be drinking water enough water, so that you are fully hydrated. 

The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine determined that an adequate daily fluid intake is: About 15.5 cups (3.7 liters) of fluids for men. About 11.5 cups (2.7 liters) of fluids a day for women (Mayo Clinic, Sep 6, 2017).

For use with patches, the recommended daily amounts of copper are 2 mg and zinc 15 mg. I get enough zinc in my doTerra multi-vitamins but I buy chelated copper supplement. 

Copper is an essential nutrient for the body. Together with iron, it enables the body to form red blood cells. It helps maintain healthy bones, blood vessels, nerves, and immune function, and it contributes to iron absorption. Sufficient copper in the diet may help prevent cardiovascular disease and osteoporosis (Medical News Today, Oct 23, 2017).

Zinc is a trace element that is necessary for a healthy immune system. A lack of zinc can make a person more susceptible to disease and illness. It is responsible for a number of functions in the human body, and it helps stimulate the activity of at least 100 different enzymes. Only a small intake of zinc is necessary to reap the benefits. Currently, the recommended dietary allowance (RDA) for zinc in the United States is 8 milligrams (mg) a day for women and 11 mg a day for men (Medical News Today, December 5, 2017).

Magnesium Chloride Flakes 
Magnesium spray is recommended rather than magnesium supplement. The most common side effects of magnesium supplements are stomach upset, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea (as nearly all forms of magnesium have a laxative effect). Magnesium hydroxide (milk of magnesia) and magnesium citrate, for example, are commonly found in over-the-counter products to treat constipation (ConsumerLab,Apr 28, 2018).

According to most findings, taking magnesium internally as a supplement is the most effective way to counter a magnesium deficiency. However, some evidence shows that for individuals with challenged digestive systems, applying magnesium externally on the skin may help to bypass the digestive tract, allowing them to absorb the magnesium more quickly and completely (The Herbal Academy, November 29, 2019)

Magnesium chloride flakes are readily available in many pharmacies or online at Amazon or Swansons for making magnesium spray. The container suggests amounts for foot soaks or bathing. As a spray, I recommend 1:1 (4 ounces of magnesium flakes mixed into 4 ounces of hot distilled water). I put the solution into a glass spray bottle, although that is probably not necessary. 

Spray the magnesium solution on your fore arms and thighs after showering. When it dries, it may leave a white powder on the skin. Dust it off with your hand.

LifeWave CEO shares the secret to better living — no more pain

Good Day Orange County (January 27, 2018) - If you are looking for a better life filled with more energy, happiness, fulfillment, more productivity — with no chemicals or prescriptions, David Schmidt of LifeWave has the solution. For more information on local events, fun activities, recipes, business, health, and all things Orange County, please visit!

3:14 - In this video, David Schmidt, the inventor of LifeWave patches, describes how he was developing survival equipment for the Navy, when he invented the energy patch. The goal was to keep the crews of submarines alive longer and give them natural energy. Schmidt discovered how to stimulate the cell with energy so it would produce more energy. This led to LifeWave.

4:00 - This light therapy. Light causes the production of Vitamin D. Light converts the cholesterol on our skin into Vitamin D. Similarly light can give us more energy, relieve pain, elevate  anti-oxidants without using drugs or stimulants.

4:34 - Schmidt demonstrates the use of the patches on the show host to relieve her pain.

4:57 - Schmidt applied an Aeon patch to the skin on the neck at the C-7 vertebrae. It is anti-inflammatory and also anti-aging and anti-stress. Many people can feel about 50% to 100% relief in pain in about two to three minutes, says Schmidt.

6:30 - The pain patch (called IceWave) is like a battery with a white and tan patch. Pain is like resistance to the flow of electrical energy. Normally a pulse flows from the brain through the nervous system to the muscles. When it's blocked, we get pain. Get the conductivity of the tissue to be normal and the pain will be reduced.

9:02 - How does it work? LifeWave patches do not  mask the pain. Instead the patches restore the natural balance of the tissue. They promote a healing effect, get conductivity of cells working, and normalize the body instead of covering pain up with the use of drugs.

10:15 - David Schmidt says his passion is to prevent anti-aging, get age reversal, keep the body young. One way is to detoxify the body. The body takes in toxins from the air and from our food. The body has a natural detoxifier in the liver - glutathione. The Glutathione patch elevates the production of glutathione in the body, which removes toxins, like mercury, for example.

11:02 - For athletic performance, a patch called Carnosine elevates the level of carnosine that is stored in the skeletal muscles, the heart, and the brain. When people use the product, the level of carnosine increases providing greater strength and stamina. It's also good for cognitive functions, improving the ability to learn and remember things.

12:15 - The body uses light for communication. For example, when we say that the body uses light to produce Vitamin D, the body has a system that takes light to cause different chemical reactions within the cells. We can use the frequencies or wave lengths of light to trigger different reactions that help us live longer and stay younger.

Why not vaccinate babies (Satire)

By Dr. John Fisher, PhD (I'm not a medical doctor.)
I'm one of those people that was hesitant to follow the CDC guide for vaccination of babies - 27 shots within the first 18 months after birth. But I've never been a believer in conspiracies. NOT UNTIL NOW. I put a search into Google using the words "why not vaccinate babies." Google lists only articles that support vaccination until on page three there is one article "24 reasons not to vaccinate your kid." This article mocks people who choose not to vaccinate children.  So then I went to DuckDuckGo to see if they would give me the other point of view. Although not exactly the same results, on page 1 all results were pro-vaccination. This just confirmed the possibility that there is a pro-vaccination conspiracy. If it is not the government or medical establishment, then it is the search engines. 
Here is an example from the article "24 reasons not to vaccinate your kid":
16. Vaccines contain toxic stuff. As a matter of fact, vaccines are mostly water and antigen, plus preservatives to keep them from going bad. Because you wouldn’t inject rotten stuff into your kids, would you? Those preservatives are similar to those in your packaged bread, soda, mayo, and mascara. Are you foregoing all those?
In fact, this statement supports my point. I don't eat packaged bread, or mayo or drink soda because of the preservatives that are in them. That would be a very good reason not to vaccinate your kids. Many people have chosen to go organic in foods. Why shouldn't vaccines also be organic?
One source you can go to for an alternative viewpoint is Dr. Robert W. Sears, M.D. He suggests a modified vaccination schedule for babies. His book The Vaccine Book: Making the Right Decision for your Child (2007) is available on Amazon (Links to an external site.).
The best recommendation anyone can get is from Wikipedia. (Afterall, its editors are known to edit out alternative viewpoints.) Here is the Wikipedia entry for Dr. Sears.
Robert William Sears, known as Dr. Bob, is an American pediatrician (Links to an external site.) from Capistrano Beach, California (Links to an external site.), noted for his unorthodox and dangerous[2] (Links to an external site.)[3] (Links to an external site.) views on childhood vaccination.[4] (Links to an external site.)[5] (Links to an external site.) His book, The Vaccine Book: Making the Right Decision for your Child (2007), proposes two alternative vaccination schedules (Links to an external site.) that depart from accepted medical recommendations. His proposals have enjoyed celebrity endorsement, but are not supported by medical evidence (Links to an external site.) and have contributed to dangerous under-vaccination in the national child population.[6] (Links to an external site.) While he denies being anti-vaccine,[7] (Links to an external site.) Sears is characterized as anti-vaccine[8] (Links to an external site.)[9] (Links to an external site.)[10] (Links to an external site.) and as a vaccine delayer.[11] (Links to an external site.)[12]

Grocery Shopping Tips in COVID-19

Grocery Shopping Tips in COVID-19 Revised (March 31, 2020)

Tuesday, March 31, 2020


Coronavirus update by David Schmidt, Scientist and CEO, LifeWave

What are your options when it comes to protecting yourself from the coronavirus? Here are the highlights from David Schmidt’s recent webinar on the subject, as he talked about what we can do to protect ourselves and our family -- beyond government measures.
Disclaimer: David Schmidt is not a medical doctor and offers this for informational purposes only. Please take
this information to your healthcare practitioner so you can formulate a strategy that is right for you. None of the information contained herein is to be considered medical advice. Lifewave products CANNOT be used to cure, treat or prevent the coronavirus. This information is provided to empower you with information so that you can keep yourself and your family in optimal health. If you become infected, speak to your doctor about some of the options presented to come up with a strategy that’s right for you.

The coronavirus is one virus in a very large family of viruses which includes the common cold. People who have coronavirus and are contagious may appear to be in good health with no symptoms. The novel coronavirus is estimated to be 10,000 times more infectious than common coronavirus. It will also stay active on many surfaces and in the air for three or four hours. Many experts believe as we get into the summer months, the virus will subside; however, information changes daily on this point. The coronavirus does not like strong sunlight. The critical temperature at which the virus dies is at 86 degrees Fahrenheit. The virus also does not like high humidity levels.

People with certain health and physical conditions are at higher risk to become infected with the coronavirus. Those risk factors include:
  • Age 60 and higher (although people at any age can be infected, those with impaired immune systems such as an older population are more likely to experience serious illness).
  • Smoking
  • Obesity
  • Excessive alcohol consumption
  • Auto Immune disorders including fibromyalgia, arthritis, Parkinson’s Disease, cancer, and diabetes

The coronavirus can remain active up to 3 hours on copper surfaces, up to 4 hours on cardboard surfaces and 2 – 3 days on stainless steel. On antimicrobial copper, however, the virus dies nearly instantly.

Gargling with as little as a 0.5% hydrogen peroxide can inactivate the coronavirus within a minute. 3% hydrogen peroxide solution is available at most pharmacies and supermarkets and may be used without diluting. You can also clean surfaces with hydrogen peroxide solution. Ozone is helpful in destroying viruses and ozone air purifiers are sold for this purpose. You can install ozone air purifiers in your office or home to keep the air clean and pure, to reduce the viral load and the risk of infection. Be sure to purchase an ozone air purifier that is intended to operate with people present, as many ozone units are sold for disinfecting only.

• Copper glycinate or copper chelate, ideally 3 – 5 mgs. Some people may have adverse reactions to copper supplements so speak with your doctor first. As little as 2mg of copper daily may be effective.
  • Vitamin C elevates production of hydrogen peroxide in the body. Take 1000 mgs daily (Note: do no take if you’re prone to kidney stones.) The combination of copper and Vitamin C has been shown to inactivate the HSV virus.
  • Melatonin is a powerful supplement with antiviral effects, and it aids in getting a good night’s sleep which supports a healthy immune system and helps to suppress viral activity. 7-8 hours of sleep is recommended.
  • Food grade sources of hydrogen peroxide, diluted to .5 %. There are some products that combine food-grade hydrogen peroxide with aloe vera.
  • Garlic extract, even stronger when combined with Vitamin C (double your levels of nitric oxide, supports immune system). It is not recommended to take garlic daily due to undesirable telomere effects.
  • BHT - Butylated hydroxytoluene, taken with coconut oil. 500mg per day. Consult with your doctor as people with Liver conditions should not consume.
  • Oregano oil, when symptomatic
  • Olive leaf extract, when symptomatic
  • Colostrum supports the overall health of the immune system
  • L Glutamine, an inexpensive amino acid
  • Ginger root – slice it and put in a pot of boiling water, sit for 10 minutes, drink 1 liter
  • Elderberry extract will keep a virus from replicating
  • Zinc gluconate; don’t take more than 50 mgs a day of zinc, optimally take 25 mgs a day. Zinc gluconate lozenges have been shown to kill the common coronavirus.
  • Vitamin D is an anti-inflammatory. You can get it by sitting in the sun for 15 to 20 minutes with no sunscreen exposing the chest area, or take 5,000 international units (IU) a day

  • Healthy fats like Omega 3 fatty acids provide essential protein and anti-oxidants which supports a healthy immune system
  • Fruits and vegetables that contain anti-oxidants known to combat viral infections
  • Liver has 20 to 30 mgs of copper per serving, and copper is known to support the immune system
  • Dark chocolate is also a great source of copper
  • Lots of water
Intermittent fasting can also dramatically improve your immune response system. Eat during 8 hours then fast for 16 hours. You can have black coffee, green tea or water but no caloric intake.

Intense exercise is beneficial to maintain a healthy immune system, such as resistance training, weightlifting, push-ups, yoga, calisthenics, Qi Gong and sprinting. Never exercise when you are sick because that compromises the immune system even further.

• Copper supplementation as described.
• Consider getting an IV drip of vitamin C and/or hydrogen peroxide from a doctor
• Ozone injections can be helpful, administered by a doctor
• Chlorine dioxide (sodium hypochlorite) treatments can help, but they are not approved by the FDA

Whatever you do, don’t panic! Added stress will elevate inflammation in the body and make you more susceptible to the coronavirus.

How LIfeWave patches work

Why LifeWave Patches 

Scientist David Schmidt invented a pop can-size oxygen generator that could be used by firefighters and also submariners. The device generated 4 hours of oxygen. He was involved in making the oxygen generator, when he was asked by the Navy to help develop a mini-sub that would increase the survivability of its Navy Seal crew members. Although because of delays, he wasn't able to join the team, it got him thinking. The Navy frowned upon the use of stimulants, like energy drinks or pep pills, but needed something small, compact and light.

"The thought occurred to me that we have wireless communication today in the form of cell phones and satellite TV; why not have a way to wirelessly communicate with the human body. A device that could 'talk' to the body to ask the body to do different things."

In the 1980s, Dr. John Zimmerman discovered the human body emits pulsating magnetic fields. Electrons flow through our bodies constantly. For example, nerve impulses travel from the brain to the muscles in our bodies. The pulsating magnetic fields, like radio waves, are a high frequency carrier wave that can carry encoded information to the body. The DNA is able to send and receive messages using an electronic process. 

LifeWave patches were developed using these principles. Schmidt invented a method that programmed organic structures the same way that computer chips are programmed. He started with ordinary materials like amino acids and specific sugars and put them into water-based solutions. (He only used materials that the FDA lists as safe.) He processed these materials in a very special way so that they are capable of "talking" to the human body. 

About LifeWave Patches

The amazing thing about the LifeWave patches is that NOTHING enters the body; instead, the patch that communicates with the body to cause different things to happen. 

In the case of LifeWave energy patches within minutes of using the patches a dramatic gain in stamina occurs. Because LifeWave IS NOT a stimulant, A person will "feel" this increase in energy with no jitters or energy rush. After a workout, people find that they do not get as tired or fatigued. LifeWave energy patch is a similar phenomena like converting food into energy.

With IceWave, a pain patch, put the patch over the pain first. If that doesn't work, poke around by moving the patches around. Move the white patch first. Then move the brown patch. Within seconds the body produces endorphins that provide pain relief.

Sleep patches tell the body to make more melatonin. The patches also tell the body to make serotonin, the happy hormone. Use the patches only at night.

The SP-6 patch balances the hypothalamus. It helps the body by balancing body functions so the body works in dealing with addictions. It is only the left-sided patch because that is where addiction points are located.

The hypothalamus:

  • releases hormones
  • regulates body temperature
  • maintains daily physiological cycles
  • controls appetite
  • manages of sexual behavior
  • regulates emotional responses

The Alavida patch helps the body balance the pineal gland, called the all-seeing eye. The All-Seeing-EYE had always been part of Earth's mythologies and creation mysteries. THE PINEAL GLAND. It is the Spiritual Third Eye, our Inner Vision, and it is considered the Seat of the Soul. It is located in the geometric center of our Brain. The Aeon patch is designed to help promote an "anti-stress" response in the body.

The Carnosine patch helps the body balance carnosine in the body. Carnosine is an antioxidant found naturally in the human body that plays an important role in overall health and athletic performance, accelerates wound healing.

The Nirvana patch supports healthy endorphin production to enhance mood.

Hormone regulating centers. I put them on my sleep mask, because I had a cataract starting. Started playing around with putting them on my sleep mask.

X-39 patch stem cell patch requires a person take copper and zinc as supplements - 2.5 mg of copper and 16.5 mg of zinc.

The patch is not in charge so using more patches is not better. The body picks up the signal from the patch and the body decides where help is needed.

Lumps and bumps are the body walling off toxin. Increased Glutathione and Carnosine both help reduce toxins. The Glutathione and Carnosine  patches will signal to the body to help produce more of both of these.

Twitter feed from FisherHouse

Scientist David Schmidt talks about COVID 19 options

"This is one of the best videos I have seen describing ways to keep healthy during the Coronavirus outbreak."Click on the YouTube video below. John Fisher

In the webinar, scientist David Schmidt cites studies that show people can take supplements to increase their immunity against coronavirus. Studies show coronavirus is killed by copper and hydrogen peroxide (H2O2).

1. He suggests taking a minimum of 1000mg of Vitamin C daily as this is converted into H2O2.

2. H2O2 may be taken with aloe vera as a supplement.

3. In the case of an infection, a hospital can administer an IV drip of H2O2. Only a medical doctor should do this because of the risks of doing IVs.

4. Ozone may also be injected. It is more powerful than H2O2 in fighting the coronavirus. 

5. Very high doses of Vitamin C can be administered by IV. This approach is very safe. 10 grams of Vitamin C and higher can be administered by IV.

7. Research also suggests gargling with hydrogen peroxide. 

Other antivirals can also be used for fighting coronavirus. Some are listed below.

1. Garlic extract is made from the garlic plant . The plant has long been considered a beneficial plant for health and has been used as an antihelmintic, a rubefacient, an anti-infective, and an antihypertensive.
2. BHT reduces and prevents viral infections such as herpes, thus terminating their outbreaks. Also BHT is effective against many different human and animal viruses including CMV (cytomegalovirus), pseudorabies, genital herpes, HIV, and some strains of influenza. Butylated hydroxytoluene (BHT) is listed as “generally recognized as safe.”
3. Oregano oil is an effective natural antibiotic and anti-fungal, and may also help you lose weight and lower your cholesterol levels.
4. Olive leaf extract have been shown to treat infection caused by a large number of viruses as well as bacteria, and parasitic protozoans. 
5. Colostrum is rich in antibodies.
6. Fasting can help build immunity. One approach would be to eat during an eight hour period and fast for 16 hours. 

Below are some other possibilities for fighting the corona virus.

1. L-Glutamine increases production of T-cells (which are the immunity cells in the body).
2. Ginger root is a very strong anti-bacterial and is anti-viral.
3. Elderberry extract prevents viruses from replicating.
4. Zinc gluconate lozenges kill viruses.
5. Vitamin D supports immune response.

Remembering how we handled the swine flu in 2009

A friend of mine shared this from wikipedia with me and I think this is great information for everyone to have. It's a great reminder for all of us about viruses from our past. Jacki

On April 26, 2009, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services declared Swine Flu a public health emergency. On October 24, 2009, President Barack Obama declared Swine Flu a national emergency in the United States. On November 12, 2009, the CDC reported an estimated 22 million Americans had been infected with 2009A H1N1 and 4,000 Americans have died. On December 10, 2009, the CDC reported an estimated 50 million Americans or 1 in 6 people had been infected with the 2009A H1N1 Virus and 10,000 Americans had died, by which time the vaccine was beginning to be widely distributed to the general public by several states. On December 23, 2009 the CDC reported a reduction of the disease by 59% percent and the disease was expected to end in the United States in January 2010.

Swine Flu symptoms
Schools closed in many states in response to local flu outbreaks. By April 30, 2009, 300 U.S. schools and school districts had announced closures in response to the outbreak, giving 169,000 students time off. On May 4, 2009, about 533 schools in 24 states in the U.S. were closed, affecting about 330,000 students. On September 25, 2009, 42 schools were closed in eight states as the second wave of the pandemic began.

On May 5, Kathleen Sebelius stated in a CDC news conference that school closures for single confirmed cases of H1N1 influenza were unnecessary, but that parents keep their child home if he or she displays an influenza-like illness.

Several US airlines waived fees for cancellations and flight changes. At least one cruise line changed the itinerary to avoid Mexican ports of call.

It seems we have all gotten into a panic with this flu strain. Italy doesn't have the structure to handle their cases. We are very fortunate to be living in the USA. If everyone chills, follows the washing hands, and staying home a while if you can, while we wait for it to blow over. It is not party time so keep to the home base. You can see the Swine flu did not have the effect this flu has on the population, but it was a pandemic in 2009. There is something to learn here on caring for one another and being kind. Helping the old folks with shopping etc. And chill out.
